Born Mar 25 1852, Chatham County, North Carolina.2,3,5,6,7,8,10,11,12  

In 1870, when William was 18, he moved from Chatham County, N.C. to Winston, Forsyth County, N.C.  He attended Boys School in Winston for two years.  When he finished school he sold goods for his brother George, who was head of the Hinshaw Company.  The Hinshaw Company eventually consolidated with "Hodgin, Sullivan & Co.", but William remained as salesman for ten years.13  

He married Anna Marie White13 [Ann Marie White7, Annie Marie White14], Jun 1 187513 [Jan 2 187315].  Anna, daughter of Joshua Simeon White & Charlotte Elizabeth Rights, was born Mar 7 1855, Winston, Forsyth County, North Carolina.2,3,5,9,10,12,13,15  

Ann's sister, Carolin Elizabeth White, had been the first child born (Sep 21 1852) in Winston, North Carolina (founded 1849).  Her parents home was the 5th house built in Winston.13  

After they were married, William and Ann lived for awhile with Ann's parents.  William built his first house on the northeast corner of Fourth and Cherry Streets, across from his brother George's home on Cherry Street.  On Jan 23 1880 he bought a lot and built a home on the south side of Fifth Street, where today [1964] is located the Forsyth County Main Library.13  

On Feb 21 1877, William was deeded a lot in Winston where he and his brother George built the Hinshaw Brothers Store.  On Dec 31 1881, William sold his interest to George and Wade H. Bynum, General Partners, and James W. Allison and E.B. Addison, Special Partners, operating as "Hinshaw and Bynum".  William then built a store on the west side of Trade Street, between Fourth and Fifth Streets, and William's family lived above the store.  William owned this store for ten years.13

William suffered from "brain fever" (Alzheimer's??) and was advised by Dr. Bahnson to move out of town, so in 1883 the family moved to a nearby farm named "Pond Grove" with 18+ acres.  In 1897 they left the farm and moved into Winston so daughter Estelle could enter grade school.  

William's family fell on hard times so son Fred travelled seeking work, which he found in Charleston, West Virginia.  Fred wrote home telling his parents of his good fortune (no need to build a fire in the morning - just turn the gas valve!).  William and sons Hugh and Clinton went to Charleston to find work.  Eventually William returned to Winston, Fred moved north, and Clinton settled in Huntington, West Virginia.1
